Don’t let the appearance of lines and wrinkles define who you are. Gilchrist Aesthetic and Medical Dermatology offers dermal and subcutaneous fillers as a way of helping patients replace the volume that is naturally depleted as we age. With continual advances in treatment options, patients in many cases may find a renewed appearance without the need for surgery.
How do we do it?
Dr. Gilchrist approaches each patient's unique facial structure as a challenge, viewing the use of injectable fillers similar to that of an artist creating a sculpture. Her approach starts by applying the latest techniques that minimize discomfort and bruising while seeking to maximize results, taking special pride in rejuvenating areas that are often overlooked, such as the earlobes and the backs of the hands.
Knowing which filler or combination of fillers to use requires experience and skill. As we age, we lose volume. Fat pads in the upper cheeks and temples begin to atrophy, and the skin that once rounded over these areas begins to gather in the lower face, creating wrinkles such as deep parentheses and sagging at the jawline.
In the past, the only treatment was a traditional facelift. With the advancement of facial fillers, the “liquid facelift” is possible, providing an alternative that in many cases prevents or delays the need for going under the knife.
